MeDirect supporting a better future for children

MeDirect gives back to the community by supporting several charities throughout the year. The Ronald McDonald House Charities Foundation Malta, was one of those charities that benefitted during 2021 by supporting their Fund-Raising Raffle. This year RMHC, raised the sum of €9,000. These funds will go towards the running of the RMHC Learning Centre, a 360m² facility that is being used by NGOs and the community.

The pandemic posed challenges on charities all over the world. Therefore MeDirect rose to the occasion to stand by RMHC and its beneficiaries even more during such tumultuous times.

RMHC gets involved in a number of activities throughout the year. In 2021, these included, more than 500 hours of one-to-one free counselling sessions through the current agreement with the Department of Counselling at the University of Malta. RMHC also supported Caritas with the setup of their new Tal-Ibwar Adolescents Therapeutic programme by hosting the educational courses at the Learning Centre. These courses are offered as part of the day programme (Tal-Ibwar Learning Hub) and included media studies, outdoor education, hospitality studies, woodwork and pottery amongst others. This also included studies in core subjects: English, Maltese and Mathematics. They also supported Richmond Foundation through their KIDs programme.

The Ronald McDonald House Charities Foundation’s aim is to widen the scope of the Learning Centre by putting the premises at the disposal of more NGOs.  They aim to host as many educational programs and events as the place permits. By the end of the year they will be supporting a total of 10 NGOs with LGBTI+ Gozo and NWAMI International Malta being their latest addition. The Foundation is currently in discussions with FSWS, the Foundation for Social Welfare Services to place the Learning Centre in the north community of Qawra, St. Paul’s Bay, Buġibba and Burmarrad through their programmes and services aimed towards children, families and the community in order to avoid social exclusion.
